Apparently I made a mistake on my reservation date, and I take the blame for that, but what happened afterwards is representative of the motel owner and staff. When I called to confirm my online reservation, the person who answered the phone could not understand what I was saying and I could not understand them. He told me they had...

I booked this hotel through the internet for a one night stay because of good reviews. I was very hesitant when I saw the place. Although it mostly outdated they do try to keep it looking nice. The beds were very comfortable. I have stayed in many motels and this has probably been the cleanest one yet. We were very...

We were passing through Bardstown just for the day and decided to rent a room. While the Old Kentucky Home Motel provided us with a no frills, affordable room that we were seeking, customer service was atrocious. We were woken up at 6:45 am by workers next door hammering and talking. Before 7am! The place was undergoing much needed renovations...

We didn't stay. I canceled, because when I called to confirm, the guy that answered the phone was VERY rude! He actually yelled at me. I was just asking if they had breakfast in the morning. His words were... NO WE DO NOT HAVE BREAKFAST!

I thought this hotel was great for the low price-half of what other places were charging. The room was very clean, fresh paint and newer looking carpet. Had a refrigerator, microwave, new flat screen tv and coffee pot but no hair dryer. I like that it's one floor and you can park by your room. Would stay again if in...

Old Kentucky Home is undergoing renovation -long over due -I would have been concerned at arrival if not for seeing carpet rolls outside some rooms and hearing workmen.The Room was clean...that was most important to us. We were only staying one night! Outside paint peeling in places, curbing falling apart in others. Some have said "Clean but dated" true, but...

The room was very clean but very dated. Its a room and just that. No coffee maker, fridge or microwave. As another reviewer posted the bathroom linen is very stained. The carpet was very worn and even patched with duct tape in one place. It was worth the price for us to lay our heads down to rest though. We...

I rarely stay anywhere other than Hampton and Comfort Inn- so for me to recommend an older, non-chain motel is very unusual. I was very hesitant, but other reviewers on Trip Advisor said it was ok (and after being treated very rudely at Comfort Inn) we decided to give this place a try. The desk clerk was very nice and...
